About the Exhibition
Grass Roots focuses on the complementary notions of ancestral and diasporic roots. Artists were asked to examine roots both from the perspective of family and geography, incorporating past homes, traditions, and histories with current realities, locations, and groundings. They also explored how shared, borrowed or salvaged symbols and styles can be grafted and re-interpreted into particularized iconographies and practices to create personal lexicons and hybrids. Linking past to present and present to past, the exhibition seeks a convergence of time and space as well as of individual and communal experience.

BADC Fund Raiser Extended On-line Click Here
A FUNDRAISER FOR BLACK ARTISTS OF DC, ORIGINAL FINE ART POSTCARD EXHIBITION AND SALE…THEME “IMAGINE”
The Black Artists of DC (BADC) first Post Card Fund Raiser was a great success. Many patrons braved the inclement weather to attend and purchase these one of a kind Post Cards. We had fun talking to the patrons and artists. The artist told us how much fun they had producing the cards and one young couple came to purchase original art for the first time and stated that this was the only way they could afford to start their art collection.
BECAUSE OF THE INTEREST IN THESE CARDS AND THE MANY CALLS FROM OUT OF THE AREA, BADC IS EXTENDING THIS EVENT BY OFFERING THE REMAINING POST CARDS ON-LINE.
